Sonya Salisbury lives near the lake and tells us about the hassle it has caused her, "My husband is in town right now spending $1000 on a backup generator so that we don't lose any more than what we've already lost".
Many pounds of meat melt away in her freezer. Until her husband gets back with the generator, Sonya is using a boat propeller hooked up to a battery pack to keep her coy pond flowing.
As temperatures continues to rise, it's not just Sonya who is hoping the for the power to kick back on, "Bo is one of my hairiest dogs, and he's actually a northern dog. So even though he's a water dog, this heat is something that can take him into a heat stroke and he could die pretty quickly".
Then suddenly, there is a happy ending to this frustrating experience, "Yay, the power is back on! This is exciting! Air conditioning!", exclaims Salisbury.
Thankfully, everyone can cool off now, and hope this doesn't happen again anytime soon.
Residents tell us there was a down power line near by, but no major damage done to homes.
